Step Back and LEAP: 9 Keys to Unlock your Life and Make Change Happen
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night and thought, "Where the hell is my life going?"
Have you ever had that gut feeling that you absolutely need to change but either you don't know how or are too afraid to do it?
All of us have been there and most of us struggle to find the answer to simple but difficult questions like "What do I really want in life?" and "How do I actually make real change happen?"
Patrick Mork, a former Google exec and serial tech marketer, hit that wall in 2017. After being fired twice in the span of 18 months at two different startups, he woke up at age 45 day terrified by the realization that what he had spent the past 20 years doing no longer excited him and that his passion for it was gone.

Fast forward 5 years. Patrick has become a highly sought after CEO coach and motivational speaker, built one of the fastest growing leadership development companies in South America, and moved to Santiago, Chile. He and his team have impacted 1,000's of people and developed leaders and high performance teams for clients including Walmart, Liberty Media, Scotiabank and regional unicorns in Latin America including Xepelin and Betterfly.
